20100708 - Tree

It didn't look as though there'd be anything of a sunset, so I was messing about pointing the other way when it went pink behind me...
Got bitten to bits by pesky midges for my trouble too. Ouch.

A perfect pink & mauve sky...hate midgies too!

Cracking sunset colours, great light on the tree also.

A true artist suffers for his art.

Suffering and art...well worth it!

That's a lovely scene (and the first time I ever heard of anyone who had a sunset sneak up on them).
Walter Otto Koenig09-Jul-2010 16:43
Nice! Like a scene out of a Peter Greenaway film.

Wonderful lighting in the foreground against the sky tones

The ones you are not expecting are always the best, what a great mix of sunset silhouette and flash work

the foreground lighting throws that textured tree into sharp relief, and lends a glow to the for the evening sky...sumptuous...and sublime silhouettes to boot...V

lovely view!

Very effective lighting.
And yes, there's lots of biters about.
Stephanie08-Jul-2010 22:12
Don't forget the skeeter spray next time. Gorgeous sunset image Phillip! :)

Well worth the sacrifice, I like the lighting you produce on images like this, well thought out.
